Working on a commission from Joe Knipp of Theater am Sachsenring, Köln, I spent a happy 4 months researching this play, the story of Wilhelm Reich. I then spent an unhappy 2 months trying to get all of the material on to stage in an amusing way. Joe’s production was wonderful.

Here is a link to the Theater am Sachsenring’s webpage about the show.


unfortunately the page is not well formatted and includes a photo from STUMM! another of my plays.

Here is a photo from the production:

Christoph Schmidtke as Wilhelm Reich and Marietta Bürger as The Actress



I shall add my own page when I get around to it…say in 2015.

Here’s a link to a video of the near-goddess Kate Bush singing her song about Reich – CLOUDBUSTING. She plays Reich’s son in the video.

Here is a LINK to a unfriendly critique of my play. The author somehow missed that I had written a largely positive play about dear old mad Reich. You can’t win them all.

Thomas Franke played the Actor. The play was translated by Betty Hensel.
